A great route pair with Don't Fear the Dojo, on the right. The FA was done with at least 5 necessary cams left either on the ground or back in the car leaving 3 pieces for the final 65 feet. Memorable to say the least.

Climb the easy corner with great stemming and small gear to a great stance below the roof. Surprisingly easy climbing through the fun roof crack leads to a stance in the corner. Continue up the easy corner system and take one final shake before leaving the corner for a crack system that gets steep and then steeper still. It's not over until the top! 2-bolt anchor.

Named after a sharp fingerlock that made both Dylan and Roderick's fingers go numb when they grabbed it.


Directly between Regular Standard Wiessner Route Direct Direct and Don't Doubt the Dojo.


Gear: Medium sized cams, emphasis on fingers and a 3" cam for the crux.

On the FA: "Oh, dude you didn't bring the 3?"

Do yourself a favor and bring the #3.
